Drain unblocking – our range of services

Jet Aire’s drain unblocking services are cost-effective for businesses and public sector organisations as well as domestic customers. We can unblock any type or size of drainage network, section or waste facility.

Drain unblocking with high pressure water jetting

We have a fleet of water jetting units for unblocking all types and sizes of drains -from small bore to large diameter pipework - including van pack jetting units, high performance jet vacs and ultra-high-pressure units.

Our all-terrain vehicles can unblock drains in the most inaccessible locations, including woodland and steep gradients.

Sewer cleaning/unblocking

Sewer systems accumulate silt build-up as well as deposits of loose concrete, bricks and grout.

Jet Aire clean and desilt sewers with high pressure water jetting and specialist equipment that remove roots intrusion. Matter is broken down and flushed through the system, to the next manhole and then removed via a vacuum pump.

Drain unblocking for tree root intrusion

When a tree root penetrates a drain, this can cause extensive blockages within the pipe. Jet Aire can provide the latest hydraulic root cutting equipment to remove any roots without damaging the pipe and eliminating expensive excavation.

Drain unblocking for hard-to-remove items

On rare occasions, an item within a drain is causing a problem but cannot be removed using traditional high-pressure water jetting methods. In these cases, we can carry out the drain repairs with robotic cutting.

Common causes of blocked drains

A variety of causes can create problems within drainage networks that may require drain repairs:

  • Concrete or grout build-up
  • Baby wipes flushed down drains
  • Cooking fat build-up
  • Animal or tree root intrusion

Below are 7 common signs that you may need a drain unblocking:

1. The smell around where your pipes or sewer lines are often an indication you need a drain unblocking

2. If your drain takes a long time for the liquid to go down

3. Your drain or toilet is completely backed up for no reason

4. You suddenly start seeing a patch of grass growing more lush than the rest

5. Boggy Ground or a Spongy Lawn

6. An increase in flies or insects

7. Cracks in walls or crumbling foundations

  • 4. We provide fully costed recommendations for works to address the problem. Our drainage expertise encompasses a comprehensive range of drainage services.

CCTV drain surveys

When the cause of drain blockage is less obvious or straightforward, a CCTV drain survey is often the most reliable way to identify the most efficient and cost-effective solution.
